Ascentcare’s unique Bite Buddy mouth prop coupled with the Lighted Saliva Sidekick provides intense illumination of the entire mouth without interfering with access. The U-shaped mouth prop design and low-profile saliva ejector tube holder leave an open visual and physical work area. Side access and visibility are not compromised while using this system. The saliva ejector tube is ideally placed to eliminate liquids from pooling. It’s innovative design angles the tube to exit the mouth without rubbing against the patient’s teeth or interfering with your work area.
Designed with antimicrobial medical grade polycarbonate, the Lighted Saliva Sidekick is sterilizable and reusable, without the fear of cross-contamination. Simply remove and dispose of the suction tip and follow cold sterilization procedures for reuse.
The Lighted Saliva Sidekick can be attached easily to all three sizes of the Bite Buddy mouth prop: small (pedo), medium and large. The Lighted Saliva Sidekick is available in left and right orientation, to meet illumination needs in all areas of the mouth.
The high intensity lighting is powered by Ascentcare Dental Product’s HyperLUX light engine, sold separately. The Lighted Saliva Sidekick produces 30,000 LUX at the highest setting. The light engine toggles between three settings: high, medium and low to give you just the right amount of visibility you desire. A cool “daylight” color temperature that does not set UV glues or sealants emits from the light engine. The entire system including the light engine is portable and ideal for moving from one exam room to another and great for use in mobile dentistry.
Using fiber optics to intraorally illuminate your patient’s mouth while precisely placing and securing a saliva ejector tube, your suction and illumination needs are met hands-free with our Lighted Saliva Sidekick.
